Kiss Your Man ~ Day 11

Our next few days will focus on the affection of honor. While you may think of honor as simply “respect”, this affection is more about priority. 

It is easy for us to think first of ourselves, our hopes, needs, and desires. After ourselves, our children usually fall next in line. To honor our husbands, though, in our affections is to give him first and highest priority. 

Although Jesus should rightly hold the uncontested position of highest place in your life, your husband is meant to be second. The next few days are about giving your husband honor (priority) in your affections. It is a call to give him more than the scraps that remain of your affections at the end of a long day! This will look differently for you depending on your season of life. Giving your husband priority when your kids are all grown up looks different than when you have a little newborn who needs to breastfeed every 3 hours! 

You don't have to guess or assume what would speak most to your man! Valerie gave us great advice- ask him! He'll be able to tell you (if you ask him) what you can tangibly do to help him to feel as important to you as he really is.

Today’s Vow: To honor my husband and his preferences more than I honor myself. “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.” Romans 12:10

Today’s Challenge: In big ways and small ways, I choose today to show my husband that I value what he values simply because he values it!
